Where You From? A Poetry Workshop

  • Nashville Public Library 615 Church Street Nashville, TN, 37219 United States (map)

Where You From?

We're all influenced by the places we’ve lived. How does where we are from show up in our writing? In this workshop, we will use setting as foundation and inspiration for our poems. We will write out our experiences, capturing the landscape, people, and memories, of the past and current spaces we live in.

SLANT workshops are intended for high school students. We meet in StudioNPL on the third floor of the Nashville Public Library. This is a free event open to students from any area, but workshop seating is limited, so please click to RSVP. If you sign up for an event and find that you are unable to attend, please let us know as soon as possible so that someone else has the opportunity to participate.
